Brief Directions

Tawang, the beautiful land of the Monpa tribes and a major centre of the Mahayana Buddhist is the headquarters of Tawang district. The cascading waterfalls, the snow-white peaks, sansurban trapping and star comforts of Tawang bring one closer to Mother Nature. The name Tawang derives from some bearings on surroundings. But people’s interpretation is that the name was given by Mera Lama in the 17th century. The township stands on the spur of a hill over 12,000 ft. above the sea level. This land is land locked by its splendour, beauty and mystic love of natures, the oldest Mahayana Buddhist temple is the oldest monastary in world, and many people around the world often vist here, to get lost in the beauty of Arunachal Pradesh.
